A clash of strengths will be on display Saturday when the high-powered Kansas City Chiefs visit the Denver Broncos in a Week 18 showdown that is pivotal for both teams. The AFC West champion Chiefs (11-5) are powered by the NFL’s fourth-ranked offense that averages 28.3 points per game. But offensive production could be difficult to come by against the Broncos (7-9), who have the league’s third-ranked defense (18.4 ppg) and will be motivated to end a 12-game losing streak against their divisional rivals. The Chiefs won the first meeting 22-9 in Kansas City and have a chance at the top overall seed in the AFC playoffs with a sweep.
Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. ET from Empower Field at Mile High. Caesars Sportsbook lists Kansas City as the 10.5-point favorite in the latest Chiefs vs. Broncos odds, while the over-under for total points is set at 44.5.
